The Fairmont on Nob Hill is a San Francisco classic, but it's more old than classic and not worth the price. The first impression is good. The hotel was built in 1907, and the exterior and lobby are grand, ornate, and dazzling. Then you start to notice some rough edges, some things that should be fixed. For instance, the elevator...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 March 2017

We spent a 3 day weekend at the Fairmont. Perched atop a hill, the views of the Bay are spectacular! The pillow top beds are heavenly, and the rooms are quiet. The Happy Hour in the Tonga Room reminded us of the Disneyland Tiki Room-with adult beverages. My daughter and I dressed up and enjoyed the afternoon tea. She loved...

It is enough just to go into the magnificent lobby, walk among the shops, and then have a drink in the lobby bar—where the classic elegance of this historic property is readily apparent. We stayed in the Savoy Suite several years ago and the same classic, warm decor was evident there. On this trip we were surprised, and disappointed, to...

They did a great job for the event we attended and our room was ver nice. The lobby service was great, however, the maid knocked on our door three times in an hour in the morning and...

The room overlooking the city, the bridge and the Bay was perfection. And the room service food was bountiful and exception. You will really feel as though you are in a luxury hotel in a specific location. Book it.

This hotel is located right in the heart of San Fran. We stayed for our Honeymoon (mid 20's couple) in an upgraded bay view room. Location is great for visiting everything especially if you use the cable car system. The room itself - The view (see photo) was out of this world. 12 floor of the tower block. The room...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.

“Our view was of the center core of the building. But we got it for a reasonable rate, so we were not expecting an ocean or park view.”
